    I worked at Pearson as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Pearson was a great opportunity for me while I was in the middle of a period of unemployment and really needed a paycheck. Assuming you apply early enough and have a college degree, you will almost certainly be given the opportunity to train for whatever test is being scored. They don't seem to turn anyone away. Getting through the training period and passing the qualifying test is the trick though. The trainers move quickly, but they do really try to help you understand the scoring guidelines so that you can qualify. I had multiple supervisors throughout the several projects I scored, and all of them were professional and helpful. The management expressed gratitude for employees' work. The pay is just OK, but there are sometimes opportunities for overtime.

    Cons

    The work requires an immense amount of concentration and can be really tedious. Training sometimes moves fast, and qualifying for some projects is more difficult than others. There are few hard and fast tricks when it comes to holistically scoring a writing test. At the end of training; some people just get it, and some just don't. If you're one of those who just doesn't get it, you are pretty much out of luck. However, you'll at least get paid for a few hours or days of training even if you don't qualify.
